“Selling a German Dagger collection”
can place you in a stressful position .
Whether it is an uncertain economy, life adjustments or simply a change in interests, the fact is that German Dagger collectors are regularly divesting themselves of years of accumulation.
As a former collector myself I understand how one might be ill prepared to sell their collection when the time comes.
The Three D’s of Liquidation
Having dealt with the marketing of numerous collections We have learned to recognize the three D’s that lead to collection liquidation: “Death,” “Debt” and / or “Divorce.” We have witnessed dozens German Dagger collections sold and most fall under one of those headings.
Before contacting potential buyers, You must decide that you ready and prepared to sell. This is crucial. If you are not ready to sell, you will be wasting your time and that of anyone you contact to buy the collection.
Selling a German Dagger collection is not a fishing expedition—
it is a business decision, plain and simple.
You have to break your emotional ties
with the items to be able to sell them.
Don’t cherry-pick your own collection .
When you try to sell a complete collection,
a buyer is probably looking at a huge sellection with
an eye for a few key items that will help him
quickly recoup a portion of his or her investment.
fast turn-around items for the buyer.
Decide on an asking price “wish price” before contacting any potential buyer,
ask about their terms before you become involved in sending much information.
This is an important step in the process:
Decide what you think is a fair price “Wish Price”
before you contact a dealer.
You are selling the collection.
Research what you think it is worth and don’t rely on blind offers. But bear in mind, you are selling to a dealer: Don’t expect retail prices. He or she needs to be able to buy at wholesale.
The Big Day
After deciding you are ready to sell and you have determined a “wish price” for the collection, contact at least a couple of potential dealers . Do not give them a complete inventory, but send them photos of the collection when it was displayed or ,create a group image
by placing everything on a table or the floor .
Such images will provide the prospective dealers a good idea of the scope of you collection.
Once the images are received you might ask the dealer “What is your standard rate of pay?”
You may receive an answer like
“I look over the collection and make an offer.”
“I examine the collection, make an estimate of how much I think I can sell it for and then offer you 60-70% of that price.”
The second reply is a straight-forward answer. 60-70 % of retail is a fair offer when selling a large mixed collection.
You will avoid having to lug the stuff around from show to show or deal with dozens of small buyers .
The Dealer will make an informed, quick evaluation and decide whether or not they can make a profit on the collection ?.
Try and remain completely detached from the collection.
The convenience of immediate payment and immediate liquidation might be enough to convince you to accept the dealer’s terms.
